This course teaches parents and professionals, to coach AUsome kidz how to understand and interpret other people around them.

This experience has been designed by Evaleen, founder of Konfident Kidz. Evaleen is autistic and has developed this course to teach children a language used by non-autistic people (or what other people call social skills)

NOTE/MORE INFO

This program is taught in a respectful way. It’s only aim is to educate and not to change any inherent behaviour or nature of any of its pupils.

This program has been running for four years. Parents have reported that children are generally more confident, happier in themselves and engaging more.

We are now training parents & professionals how to teach these communication skills in a respectful way to their children. The course also aims to educate parents and professionals on Autistic Communication

The course is divided into 3 levels to build on the knowledge of language a child already has so we have activities to suit all ages and abilities.
